Pharmaceutical Returns – Good For You and the Environment
All of us are concerned with public health and safety, as well as ground and surface water contamination and pollutants. That is why we offer an environmentally sound option for managing pharmaceutical returns that are determined to be hazardous and non-hazardous waste material after processing. This waste requires secure handling and transportation to ensure safe and proper disposal.
We utilize the expertise and destruction services of Covanta Secure Services who are leaders of co-generation and waste-to-energy technologies. In the highly regulated waste-to-energy business, Covanta Secure Services is respected for the superior engineering and outstanding environmental performance and operations.
We are an EPA large hazardous waste generator and a supporter of the Greener Earth Environmental Initiative. As a large hazardous waste generator, we remain committed to seeing that all waste is handled in a way that ensures the health and safety of employees, the immediate community and the environment as a whole.
Guaranteed Returns® and various trade related professional associations work together to address ongoing changes with Reverse Pharmaceutical Distribution and regulatory environmental issues.
Such associations include:
- National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP)
- Healthcare Distribution Alliance (HDA)
- Federation of American Health Systems (FAHS)
- American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP)
- National Community Pharmacists Association (NCPA)
We also consult with the DEA, DOT, EPA, OSHA, and the FDA. We have and continue to support all environmental programs that local, state and federal agencies have established over the years to ensure the proper destruction and disposal of hazardous and non-hazardous waste material.
